I had some leftover chicken from last night and was craving something cheesy and delicious! I made a super simple chicken salad that was really good even by itself, but I piled it up on top of fresh tomato slices and topped it with cheese. It's a great quick lunch!
Makes two servings of 2 melts each
For the chicken salad I used:
1 leftover large cooked chicken breast that was seasoned with lemon pepper, chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
2 tbsp red onion, chopped
You'll also need:
1 medium tomato sliced into 4 thick slices
4 slices of cheese, you choice. I used 2 sharp cheddar and 2 swiss. Both were really good.
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. In a medium bowl mix the chicken, mayo, sour cream, parsley, lemon juice and onion, mix until combined.
3. In a small baking pan arrange the four slices of tomato and top evenly with chicken salad. Add 1 slice of cheese to each one.
4. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve 2 melts per person.

You can also make this chicken salad and just eat it over lettuce or with celery sticks. Yum!
